Bayern Munich

Bundesliga defending champions Bayern Munich, have continued to dominate the league, and are entering this tie on the back of a 5-2 win over Benfica in the Champions League.

The Bavarians have been in impressive form this season, and are currently sitting on top of the table after winning eight of their opening ten games (D1, L1).

Goals have also been plenty in their matches this season, as they are currently averaging 3.8 goals per game in the league. 

With one point separating them and second-placed Dortmund, Julian Nagelsmann’s side will be desperate to win this game and maintain their grip on the top of the table. 

Possible Bayern Munich starting line-up

Manuel Neuer; Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, Niklas Sule, Lucas Hernandez; Joshua Kimmich, Marcel Sabitzer; Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane; Robert Lewandowski.

SC Freiburg 

Freiburg travel to Munich as the only unbeaten team in Germany, a feat not only four teams have achieved in Europe’s top five leagues.

The visitors have surprised many this season and are comfortably sitting within the top four after ten games. 

Their 3-1 win over Furth Berlin last time out extended their unbeaten run to 12 games in all competition this season. It was also their fifth win in the last six games and will certainly give them confidence going into this fixture.

For those who might be questioning their abilities, Christian Streich’s men beat Dortmund and Wolfsburg and drew with RB Leipzig, proving that they are no pushovers.

They will fancy their chances of winning against Bayern but will know that a tough test awaits them in the capital.

Possible Freiburg starting line-up

Mark Flekken; Lukas Kubler, Philipp Lienhart, Keven Schlotterbeck, Christian Gunter; Maximilian Eggestein, Nicolas Hofler; Woo-yeong Jeong, Vicenzo Grifo, Kevin Schade; Lucas Holer
